Before You Vote, Consider A Few Things

Folks, it is almost time for us American citizens to exercise our most important obligation after jury duty and that is to cast our ballots and vote.
Before we do that, I would just like to point out a few things about some of those who would like to do certain things when they take power.
So, here we go:

1) Cut the defense budget 25%, raise taxes, relax unemployment insurance requirements and extended the same benefits.

And all of that was said in one interview by Massachusetts Democrat congressman, Barney Frank.

2) An increase in government spending that would be 4,300,000,000,000 (that is trillion) over the course of the next administration.

Read the whole article for what that amazing increase in government spending is going to be for.

3) The tax break that one gets for investing in a company 401k plan will be possibly on the chopping block. And to replace it-Social Security II.

Now I get it. We should not be encouraged to invest our money the way we see fit. No, we will have to give it to the government. For a three percent return.

4) It is safe to say that the Democrats foreign policy will look a lot like. . .Jimmy Carter. And we know how well that worked out.

There is a lot more, but these are just some of what one should consider when you cast your vote. Whether it is early voting or on election day.
There will be more of these as we get closer to election day.
I leave this post with this.
It is a lot more than whether a candidate has "temperament" or "erratic" behavior. It in a lot more than who gives a great speech and who sounds more like the parent that has to be the disciplinarian. It is more than whether one is grandiose or common-folk.
It is about the fundamental direction of the United States. In many aspects of our everyday lives.
And, every election is important.
But this one really is because the Democrats really believe that the United States is no longer a center-right nation. Because the Democrats believe that the American people so loathe one George W. Bush, they do not care who they vote for. As long as it is not a Republican and or a Bush. And with that, when the mask of change, hope, togetherness is ripped away from The One, somehow the people will not notice.
So, it is the duty of those of us who care to continue the fight. For it is a good fight. It is the fight for the heart and soul of what kind of nation the United States will be.
And, there will be a lot more of these kind of posts from now until election day.
Because you need to consider everything before you vote.

I'm amazed at how, well, I'll use the word but it's rather blunt, "stupid," people are to be swayed by ads that feature Bush as the anti-Christ. Literally, s-t-u-p-i-d.

I realize BDS is a serious disease, and maybe I should have sympathy for people suffering from it, but it seems you SHOULD just be able to try a little harder to, you know, think for yourselves.

I understand that may be akin to telling someone suffering from depression to just be more cheerful, but, seriously, Bush's image appears in ads for even local elections, where his influence is nil, except to intentionally trigger bouts of BDS. It's just so sad to see the Democratic party using their constituents disease for their own gain (does that count as sympathy?).
